automatically color communications by listener

Larry | Last updated: Jun 28, 2016 02:30PM UTC

During pentest of some apps it's very handy to login as multiple users for testing interactivity issues and other things. I just setup multiple listeners to make that easy. It would be super helpful if you could assign a default color to be automatically applied to all communications of a specific listener. Thanks for a great product! Larry Craddock Ultimate Software

Thanks for this request. We agree that having all kinds of auto-coloring capabilities based on features of requests/responses would be nice, including by listener. In the meantime, did you know that you can (a) pop up additional views of the history, via the context menu; and (b) set display filters based on the listener port? So you can show two separate history windows, one for each listener port.

Great tip to know ! Would it be possible to be able to add a title for easily identify what history we are working on ? I have to use Windows and I can't edit the window title.

Hi Thomas, The Burp project name is included in the title bar. Otherwise, there are a number of third-party utilities that you can use to change a title, such as: - https://sourceforge.net/projects/windowtitle/
